Dear Hard Working Gardener Club Members,


It seemed like we had a great plant sale.  I don’t know the numbers, but it seemed we had less left this year than last, and we had a continuous turn out of customers.  About 77% of our club members participated one way or another.  Good showing.  It was an exhausting day, but well worth the efforts.  I can’t wait for the Plant Sale Committee report.  Those caladiums were a beautiful new addition.  The unique crafts and treasures were an added bonus to our sales.  Thank you, club members for all you have done to make the sale a success.


The Bee Lady, Vicki Kleber, gave an outstanding presentation about “Raising Bee Colonies”.  I am enjoying the creamed honey.  Maybe this would be an interesting topic for the Flower Show.


I have just finished planting my new perennials and annuals for this year.  I am thrilled with my purchases.  Now I look forward to the season of watering and fertilizing, weeding and dealing with the wild life.  The chipmunks are driving me crazy. They already have eaten my new lily bulb, dug up some newly planted, annuals and teased my dog to race through my little garden after them. So maybe I am not finished planting.


All are God’s blessings, one way or another. Keep tabs on your calendars as there are many exciting activities planned. Keep up the good work fellow gardeners.

Sincerely Ann Ferguson
